First aid kits aren’t just for people. Cats and dogs need them too. April is Pet First Aid Awareness Month, which makes this the perfect time to make sure you have a well-stocked first aid kit ready for your furry pal in case of a medical emergency. The good news is that you don’t have to buy tons of special or expensive pet supplies to be prepared. Much of what you need can also be found in a regular first aid kit. You can even buy two of the same first aid kits for both your family and your pets, and designate one for each. Just remember to store them in separate areas too so you don’t accidentally mix them up. What exactly should your pet first aid kit consist of? Check out this helpful AVMA article from the American Veterinary Medical Association to find out exactly what you should keep in your dog or cat’s first aid kit.
